BBC America gifted the world today with a First Look trailer for season 2 of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. From the looks of it… well if you found season 1 confusing, that was only the beginning. The season’s tagline is “Brand New Case, Still No Clue“ if that serves as a hint to what awaits you in fall.
And when we say fall, we actually mean Saturday, October 14th, 2017 at 9pm EST / 8pm CST. Yes, folks, you have less than 2 months to binge watch Dirk Gently season 1 before this lovable but insane madness starts again.
Without further ado, here is the First Look at Season 2 Trailer!
From the press release:
BBC AMERICA released today the first look trailer, photos and new season two details for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, starring Samuel Barnett and Elijah Wood. Season two premieres Saturday, October 14, 9/8c on BBC AMERICA. Season one is available to binge on Hulu.
ABOUT SEASON TWO
Every season is a dizzying, smart, dangerous, unexpected and (for us, not the people involved) fun adventure that explores a different genre. Season one was about time travel with body-swapping, and this season involves an injection of fantasy. The vast dangers lurking in the fantasy realm navigate a path to Earth, becoming a threat in reality, and it’s up to Dirk (Barnett) and the gang to stop them in their tracks. But first – they need to find each other… Everything and everyone continues to be connected… from the sterile chambers of the government organization Blackwing, to the sleepy town of Bergsberg and the magical land of Wendimoor. After a few misfires, Dirk Gently steadily finds his footing on the new case to “find The Boy”, and with the help of his friends, makes the necessary connections to solve the mystery before it’s too late.
From creator Max Landis and showrunner Robert Cooper, the series is adapted from the popular novels by Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who).
RETURNING AND NEW CAST
Samuel Barnett (Dirk), Elijah Wood (Todd), Jade Eshete (Farah), Hannah Marks (Amanda), Mpho Koaho (Ken), Fiona Dourif (Bart), Dustin Milligan (Friedkin), Michael Eklund (Martin – Rowdy 3), Osric Chau (Vogel – Rowdy 3), Viv Leacock (Gripps – Rowdy 3), and Zak Santiago (Cross – Rowdy 3) are all set to return.

So what do you think, folks? Hit me up on twitter at @aliskyrichards or at @ThreeIfBySpace to discuss the trailer, speculation on what’s to come, and what – or who – you’re most excited to see. For me? I’m totally excited to see Rapunzel the Corgi (played by Bentley) back – hopefully not with Lydia back inside.
Plus what ever happened to the kitten-shark?! I still want to know this information.
